TIPS : Get rid of bloating & Prevent it
We all get bloated, whether its after a weekend of carb filled indulgences or its that time of the month. Here are some things you can do to make yourself feel a little less huge and uncomfortable & prevent the bloat!
- Peppermint Tea
Did you know Peppermint oil is actually used in de bloat tablets ? Peppermint relaxes the gut and relieves abdominal pain, bloating and other digestive symptoms. Have a cup of hot peppermint tea when your bloated, or just make it a go to before bed every night!
- Avoid eating huge salty and carb heavy meals
Its Saturday night and your about to go out for a drink and perhaps a big juicy burger. Whatever the meal is, try to limit your portions on meals that are high in carbs ! This will help you to feel a bit less uncomfortable in the moment and will save you the morning bloat that comes with carb heavy meals.
- Drink plenty of water!
Usually when we bloat on our periods (or youve had a salty meal), its because our body is retaining water. To help your body flush out the water, drink enough water during the day and make sure you get in some exercise to sweat out!
- Avoid fizzy drinks
Not only is soft drinks full of sugar and bad for your health, the bubbles in them contain carbon dioxide and when we drink the beverage, were swallowing a lot of air. This can make you feel super bloated. Try replacing soft drinks for juices or better yet, water.
